The Vint Hill Fall Festival (VHFF) will be held on September 23. Vint Hill’s signature annual event, now in its third year, has steadily increased its audience and vendor participation—a reflection of the community’s desire for an outdoor, family-friendly community event in the heart of New Baltimore. The 2017 festival will bring back a variety of entertainment, artisan vendors and children’s activities, as well as more food vendors and new features specifically designed to engage and entertain families. Staying true to the festival’s mission, which is to carry on the tradition of a signature autumn event that dated back to the days of the former Vint Hill Farms Station Army base, the festival takes the form of a street fair that focuses on the local businesses of Vint Hill, greater Fauquier County, and the Piedmont region. The VHFF is spread along Aiken Drive, Vint Hill’s main street, and the surrounding green areas.
This year, the VHFF hosts, Vint Hill Village, LLC, have partnered with Fauquier County Parks & Recreation (FCPR) to ensure that families, especially those with young children, have plenty to look forward to. FCPR will be hosting its own “Family Fun Day at Vint Hill” in the Village Green directly adjacent to the festival, sharing the day with the festival to create an overflow of activities dedicated to children. Inflatable moon bounces, a rock climbing wall and magic show are just a few highlights to expect at Family Fun Day. Complementing this, VHFF will continue to showcase an abundance of children’s activities, including a petting zoo, which will be open all day long this year and offer a larger variety of animals, children’s vendors, face painting, and family-friendly music and performances.
Among the growing list of participants this year, the festival will include the return of the classic car show by Camelot Classic Cars, musical talent, demonstrations and dance performances throughout the day, including musical performances by Leon Rector and the Nashville Standard, as well as a special appearance by Washington Capitals Slapshot. Vendors include business locals Bull Run Academy of Gymnastics, The Lasley Centre, Piedmont Dogs, Lord Fairfax Community College, Old Bust Head Brewing Co., Iva Bella Salon, Simple Pure Products, and The Fauquier Community Theatre, and many more.
Food trucks and vendors will include SoBo Mobile, Crepe Love, The Philly Cheese Steak Food Truck, A-1 Kettle Korn, The Inside Scoop, Johnson Family Funnel Cakes, Cooking Thyme, Old Tyme Stick Ice Cream, Chocolate Moonshine Co., Shawn’s Smokehouse BBQ, Churrasco Brazilian Steakhouse, and more.
